Attraction details
Owner description: The Water Tower was built in 1900 entirely of red unplastered bricks in the neo-gothic style with interesting external vaulting around its crown and two coats of arms over the entrance: one Mazurian and one municipal to emphasise its being part of the region. The water reservoir in the tower distributed water to all the dwellings for 97 years. Nowadays, following the great reconstruction of the interior and adding a dome and three additional floors and extending the viewing platform with telescopes, the tower has become Giżycko’s most unique tourist attraction. To reach the top, one has to climb 129 steps (or use the lift). The highest floor of the tower is 162 m above sea level and it houses a café. From this height, one can truly appreciate the panorama of the town and the surrounding areas with lakes and forests – a typical Mazurian landscape. The inside the tower houses the local museum with exhibits that illustrate the past life of the local people.

The best place to have panorama of Gizicko and nice cafeteria on the top. The views were somehow disappointing we expected to see more.

Gizycko is fantastic tourism destination. Recommend to visit Water Tower as the views from the top terrace are breathtaking. You can enjoy the beautiful panorama view of the town. Below the platform there is a nice cafe.

I was there yesterday and it was good. Nice panorama on the lake but little bit more expensive tickets. If you are in Giżycko you should go there.

The view is the main attraction: over the city and the port along the big lake.
But inside are also many interesting old pictures and paintings, and on top you can enjoy a nice tea with pastries, etc.
